ONE MURDER.

Piet Hoffmann is the Swedish police force's best undercover operative. Not even his family know of his double identity. Yet when a drug deal with the Polish mafia goes fatally wrong, his secret life begins to crumble around him.

TWO MEN.

Detective Inspector Ewert Grens is charged with investigating the drug-related killing. Unaware of Hoffmann's true identity, he believes himself to be on the trail of a dangerous psychopath.

THREE SECONDS.

Hoffmann must desperately maintain his cover; else he is a dead man walking. But, in the doggedly-perceptive Ewert Grens, he has just made the most relentless of enemies.

Swedish noir in a gritty world of drug dealers, informants, and convicts. The pacing is masterfully constructed, but a straightforward plot doesn't leave much room for mystery.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is a suspense-filled thriller originally published in Swedish. It involves undercover police work and the efforts of an investigator named Ewert Grens to unravel a crime while others are trying to cover up official involvements. The climax of the story leads you to the edge of your seat as explosions rock a notorious jail."

Excellent book, with a great main character--Ewart Grens. He is methodical and gets the answer to the mystery in his own way. Well written.

Portions of book about police procedure except content more interesting than Larsson's last 2 books, which related to police procedure and at times quite boring. Gripping story. Characters were better defined than Larsson's characters as well.

It's like Traffic on the Swedish-Polish border, but everything from the weather to the criminals' hearts is a little colder.

Three Seconds was named Sweden's top crime novel of 2009.

Hoping for another Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," New Regency has acquired Three Seconds, the fifth novel in a bestselling Swedish crime novel series by Anders Roslund and Bonge Hellstrom. The author team is intriguing - one's a former journalist, the other an ex-criminal.
